A stroll down memory lane. Burford has lost none of its charm. Despite the coach loads of tourists it remains unsullied. We had lunch at the Lamb which was slightly overpriced but still lovely and a fantastic setting

This place is thankfully much quieter than Bourton-on-the-Water. It has a beautiful church by the small brook which has an equally pretty churchyard. In the Main Street and down the side streets are some simply stunning old houses. There are plenty of curio shops, coffee...More

Situated right on the A361 (just before you get onto A40), we came upon this little old English town whilst driving home from Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. We had to stop and park up, it was so quaint. We had a wander up and then back down...More

The main road through Burford is the A 361 so makes the town busy. There are traffic lights at the bottom of the hill to go over the bridge as it is narrow. Car parking is free both on the road and in the car...More

Typical Cotswold village with some interesting shops. Be sure to go down the side streets and see some lovely places and don't miss the bridge which is well worth a look along withe churches.

Passing through the Cotswold region we decided to pull into Burford - so pleased to discover for ourselves this delightful village - we enjoyed a lovely cup of tea at the quaint tea house and purchased cheese for supper- a thoroughly pleasant afternoon

This is a typical Cotswold village, but it is on quite a steep hill so if you aren't great at walking uphill, beware! Parking is also limited so in peak holiday times it will be very busy. Just a pretty place to wander around for...More

Witney has got it right. Free parking and a lovely village packed with interesting shops. You do need a large wallet to buy things here but take your camera and just enjoy the scenery.

Burford High Street is quaint, with a variety of shops selling fairly expensive goods. There are plenty of places to eat, and it's very popular with overseas visitors.

Hi , The main street in Burford is a little hilly but anyone with a stick can negotiate this . Keep in mind that this place is so beautiful that will will need to stroll to take in all the sites . Enjoy it as much as we did .
